The European Union's anti-piracy naval force EU NAVFOR has set up a Facebook page to provide updates on the piracy situation off the Horn of Africa.

Headed up by a British rear admiral, the naval force conducts anti-piracy operations off the coast of Somalia and the Indian Ocean.

It also protects humanitarian aid shipped by the World Food Programme to the people of Somalia and the Horn of Africa.

The new Facebook page is to provide insights into the life of men and women serving on EU naval force units. Updates on the piracy situation will also be posted.

EU NAVFOR invited people to join the Facebook page and to "get involved and show your support for EU NAVFOR and the many people serving at sea to keep the seas off the coast of Somalia safer for seafarers".
